I am typically a glassduk guy but I strongly suggest do not book this hotel at any cost. The toilet was not flushing at all so we couldn't use toilet until second day mid day . We were promised first thing in the morning the toilet will be fixed. It was arranged by midday. -No apologies, - no offer for credit for inconvenience. - No alternative was given eg use another toilet . - When the plummer came finally, my partner was using the bathroom and I had to say plumber to come again. Then the staff said , if second time you were unavailable, you will have to pay for plummers visit. I think that was too arrogant. You have no idea about customer service. First th toilet flush is not working and second asking customer to pay for plummers. Come on...this is works in hotel industry. - when I asked for an extra hour of late check out , I was blurntku refused. NO you have to check out at 10PM. The guy was sleeping at 10am do don't expect any 24x7 service here. Come on I wanted to use toilet but I couldn't. It's like buying a car without a rare wheel. We would be happy with I'd we were given another toilet option being offered I am sorry to say, folks running the place have no hotelia mindset ,perhaps family business without qualification about about running a hotel. Older parents were very frienndly. We quite like them. Again, so not book this place unless you want an insult and bad experience. Good luck to hotel folks. H
